Has anyone had an encounter with 'high strangeness', such as an
'alien encounter' or a 'ufo encounter', some sort of parapsychological
incident or anything of the like, which might be classified as an example
of the Trickster phenomenon / control system?
If so, can you think back about any clues or observations which might
throw more factors into the mix for group questions and analysis?
Well, does it count I was just thinking about posting this very question?
Well...I was outside once.
For whatever reason, I see just a bunch of seagulls that usually fly in a certain area from time to time. However, one kinda stood out different for a second, then bam. It turned, looked like a a big weather balloon, fluttered for a few seconds to the left, and disappeared behind a building.
And thats it.
Man, good grief there is way, way too much ego in this field.
It is getting to the point that I can barely take this nonsense seriously anymore.
I say that as an experiencer who is interested in discovering the SCIENCE in this phenomena. I am not interested in waxing about who knows what on a particular subject, or whether so and so believes that a certain philosophy is contradictory or worthless.
I want tangible, predictable hypotheses and believe that this very thread's OP supplies us the means to test these ideas to achieve TANGIBLE RESULTS.
Jesus. 20 some odd pages of name dropping, information gathering gets is NO CLOSER to an actual result, despite what you may think you know.
Literally ALL OF THE ANSWERS are provided by Vallee! A responsible scientist will use this info to form a predictable model, not argue over what constitutes the makeup of a effin shaman
Beware the wolf in sheep's clothing.
It is almost like someone drops clues and then steers the convo in a particular direction

but let's float this partial answer past for duscussion.
I propose that the core mystery deals with some entity or simulation feeding back into human desire to understand what 'they' are and what 'their' relationship is with the 'other' that they are not. For example it's like man wants to find god and god wants to find man. It seems neither is comfortable existing without the other and is enticed by the other but does not want to stop playing games with the other and actually discover the truth. Both 'parties' seem to be in denial and despite what they say they wish the status quo maintained.
This is an anthropomorphic metaphor but as sentience is involved that should be acceptable.
